NORFOLK, Neb. – The Northeast Community College softball team is hosting a benefit for one of its current team members on April 11 at Ta-Ha-Zouka Park in Norfolk, Neb.
Freshman Brooke Windahl was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this year and has been making a strong recovery. Northeast Head Softball Coach Iris Woodhead and the team are selling t-shirts to raise funds for Windahl and her family to help offset any medical expenses.
“This benefit is for Brooke and her family,” Woodhead said. “Brooke is a strong individual and gather and I can’t think of a better way to lift her up and help her in her fight against cancer.”
During the game, fans can purchase a t-shirt, buy grilled food items or contribute financially.
The Hawks will face Southeast Community College at 3 p.m. in a doubleheader and will be wearing a special jersey that will be auctioned off later, with all proceeds benefiting the Windahl family.
Throughout the season, Northeast softball players have been wearing a special orange ribbon on their jerseys in honor of those diagnosed with leukemia.
